GLENDALE, Calif. - Elizabeth Taylor's funeral started late - just the way the screen legend wanted it. Her family held a brief private service Thursday at a Southern California cemetery famous for being the final resting place of Hollywood celebrities, including her good friend Michael Jackson. But the funeral began 15 minutes after its announced start time in observance of the actress' parting wish, according to her publicist, Sally Morrison. She left instructions asking for the tardy start and had requested that someone announce, "She even wanted to be late for her own funeral," Morrison said. - SANDY COHEN

CANNES, FRANCE: (FILES) This 23 May, 2002 file photo shows US actress Elizabeth Taylor arriving at a benefit party in Mougins, near Cannes, France. The heirs of a victim of Germany's Nazi rule 13 October, 2004 sued screen icon Taylor for ownership of a Van Gogh painting they claim rightfully belongs to them. The South African and Canadian descendants of of Margarete Mauthner, a Jewish woman who fled Germany in the late 1930s say the actress should have known when she bought the painting for 257,600 USD in 1963 that it had been stolen by the Nazis. The suit was filed in Los Angeles after the 72-year-old movie legend filed court papers in May seeking a declaration that she is the rightful owner of "View of the Asylum and Chapel at Saint-Remy" , the 1889 painting by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. Double Oscar-winner Taylor, 72 bought the painting at a Sotheby's auction in London in 1963 and keeps it at her Los Angeles home. Mauthner fled Berlin to South Africa in 1939 after having lost most of their property, including the painting, as a result of "Nazi economic and political coercion" and that the family was therefore entitled to reclaim it under the 1998 US Holocaust Victims Redress Act.
